Payton Looney Rocks To Rockabilly 45 Triumph At I-30 Speedway

Call it number two for Payton Looney. The Missouri racer led all 45 laps of Saturday night’s 10th annual Rockabilly 45 at I-30 Speedway to pick up the second COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Model victory of his career. The win was worth $5,000.

“Man we struggled horribly last night (at Texarkana 67 Speedway). I’m just no good at those types of racetracks like 67 was in Texarkana, and we kinda worked on the car a little bit. Special thanks to Marshall Green at Capital Race Cars,” said Looney. “The racetrack really cleaned up through the top, middle. I knew I was alright just as long as I hit my marks. The race car was great.”

Mark Martin Automotive Fast Qualifier and Integra Shocks and Springs Heat Race No. 1 winner, Jon Mitchell started in the New Vision Graphics Pole Position for the 45-lap affair. He was joined on the front row by Looney, and it was Looney who grabbed the lead as the race went green.

Mitchell ran second during the early laps before mechanical woes forced him pit side. Looney went relatively unchallenged throughout the remainder of the event to register the win. Logan Martin finished second while Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year point leader, Spencer Hughes rounded out the podium. Kyle Beard rallied from the 10th-starting spot to finish fourth with Brian Rickman charging from 15th to the fifth position at the checkered flag.

The CCSDS contingent will now enjoy an off weekend before rolling into Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) on June 18-20 for the annual General Tire Clash at the Mag presented by Big River Steel. The weekend will be co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and is highlighted by $5,000-to-win programs on both Thursday and Friday night, while Saturday’s finale includes a $20,000-to-win finale.
